In December 2016 we celebrated the 200th anniversary of the foundation stone of Holy Trinity Church being laid.
As part of the 200th celebrations, Andy Barber, one of our church wardens, is writing a monthly blog – essentially a short historical snippet for each month between the foundation stone being laid in Dec 1816 and the church opening in Oct 1819.
